Australian long term member, Mr. Hans Mayer has received a CIGRE Distinguished Member Award in recognition of his significant contributions to the technical work of CIGRE globally over a long period of time.
The “Distinguished Member” title is granted to long-standing members who have contributed to the Association through participation in the technical work or within the National Committees. Its purpose is to acknowledge the active participation of members over a number of years, to the work and development of CIGRE.
This Award was well deserved, as Hans as been an active CIGRE member for many years, has attended 20 CIGRE Paris sessions over 40 years (only held every 2 yrs) and has been an active participant and well respected member of several global working groups and Australian Panels since he came to Australia in 1982.
